Husk, the popular Sean Brock eatery that suffered an electrical fire early Thursday morning, has plans to reopen sooner than one might think. David Howard, President of Neighborhood Dining Group, has released a statement concerning the next steps forward for the Rutledge Hill restaurant.
Contractors are assessing the damage and have begun demolition/rebuilding. We should have a better idea of a timeline for reopening in the coming days. We will not be closed long and want our valued staff to be able to work again quickly.
Though three employees were still inside the restaurant when the fire broke out, nobody was injured. Howard also notes that the fire was “limited to the electrical room, dish room and roof, and no damage was done to the main dining room or kitchen,” which is a relief because the restaurant is located inside a converted 19th Century mansion along with a very fine bourbon selection.
